SLIDESHOW

How gorgeous is this couple who decided to come to the Cayman Islands by themselves to tie the knot and then go back home and celebrate with family and friends. Shelby and Samuel were married under the wedding gazebo on the seven mile beach Westin.

The final day of Cayman Cookout 2017 was amazing….starting the day with the Bon Vivant Amateur Chef Competition Brunch sponsored by Kirk Market. Endless Moët & Chandon Champagne and extravagant brunch selections enchant as Grand Cayman’s most ambitious amateur Chefs duel in a live cook-off in The Cayman Islands Ballroom. The amateur Chef finalists will face-off during Sunday brunch and the winner was determined by celebrity Chef judges Eric Ripert, Anthony Bourdain, José Andrés and Emeril Lagasse. Savory bites, sweet delights, flowing bubbles, mixing and mingling with the who’s who in food and wine; no better way to spend your Sunday afternoon!!!

 

We then headed over to the Harbour Pool and Club for Rum and Robusto to discover the spirit of the Caribbean by tasting rum. From locally-produced to world renowned, guests indulged their senses with “la vida Cubano” while enjoying cigars and coffee with live music by Son Cubano at the Harbour Club. Basking in the beautiful Caribbean sun and sipping on cocktails inspired by the islands’ vibrant colors and flavors guests toasted to the good life in Cayman. Featuring some of the best Rum in the world Ron Abuelo, Diplomatico Mantuano and Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, Ron Zacapa and Havana Club.

 

Then the chefs headed over to join the  Petanque and Pastis sponsored by OBUT. Petanque is similar to Bocce and Pastis is what you sip while you play! To say the competition was heated is the least to be said. As Jose Andres begged for judges to interfere at some ‘cheating’ that was apparently going on until the sun went down. Most of the chefs included their kids which was great to see.

 

The evening finished with a private dining in Blue Restaurant with the headliner chefs presenting some incredible food.

Day 3 of Cayman Cookout was amazing….. heading out to the beautiful RumPoint, the chefs all prepared amazing food from mini burgers and fries soaked in red wine, lamb chops, fresh tuna, wahoo, lobster, shrimp to name a few. Not forgetting incredible mixed cocktails and of course Moet Champagne. After everyone headed back to the Ritz Carlton to enjoy some baking by Christina Tosi and a cooking demo by Eric Ripert and Anthony Bourdain while sipping on freshly cut coconuts laced with rum….but of course.
